I first traveled to Japan in 2016 (10 days) and I will be making a 30 day trip there this June. What surprised me was everyone always told me that Japan is a very expensive place to travel to. Being from the US the plane ticket is kind of pricey but besides that nothing really seemed overly expensive. As far as accommodations, hotels in the US are right on par with those in Japan. I could easily spend as much for a hotel in my home town which isn't even a big city. Then as far as food goes, sure you can go to an expensive restaurant but you can do that anywhere. I would argue that you can eat well for cheap much easier than any place I have traveled. Street food is quite reasonable and the conbini are amazing.
